RUTH EVELYN ALLEN 
" Ruth " 



1 Chestnut Avenue, Easl Lynn, Mass. 
Three years. 

Senior Play; Senior-Middle Play; Spanish Play. 

We had all heard that Ruth had great dramatic ability, but we 
didn't realize how much she had made <>f her talent until after 
the Senior Play. If she should undertake a stage career, we 
know that with her usual determination, uot to say stubbornness, 
she would make good. We may have entertained a genius 
unawares.

ELIZABETH ARMSTRONG 
" Lizzie " 




646 Lafayette Avenue, Buffalo, X. Y. 
One and one-half years. 

Advisory Board '19; Bible Class Leader '19; Class Book Board '19;

'19; English V Play '18; Draper Reader '18; Numerals, Hockey '19; 
Fir-t Sergeant ( o. B '18. 

Ltzzie shines in 1919 along literary lines, and we wonder what 
we would do without her clever si tries and amusing poems to 
make our Lit. classes pass so pleasantly. Lizzie also has a great 
knack for play-writing. We exped in the future to be purchas- 
ing the " Lizzie Armstrong books" on the instalment plan. 



We have a young genius named Lizzit ■ 
When from ht r short stories we're dizzy, 

\\ * soon <l<i despair, but more "ii<n declare, 
" Why can't we write stories Uke Lizzii '" 



KATHRYN ATKINS BECK 
" K." 




Wayland, Mass. 
Two years, 

Courant Editor '18. '19: Senior Plav. 



Some people adore " Poll-Parrots'* — anyway, K.'s one of these. 
She has her own little pet, and they're just too clubby for words. 
K. will never shiver for want of clothes — long ones. We are 
much indebted to her for the grinds which she managed to re- 
member for this hook; and as for her Courant write-ups on lec- 
tures, they are superb ! 



K. is level-headed, ties — 

And .net she's far away from crowds; 
shf In, pes to make a flight some day 

A way up in the clouds.

MAREA MILLER BLACKFORD 
" Marea " 



1034 South Main Street. Findlay, Ohio. 

Two year-. 

Class Secretary '18; Fidelio IS. '19; Senior Plav. Senior-Middle 
Plav. 



Maeea is one of those breezy western girls, full of the why's and 
wherefore's of life. She is ever cautions, particularly in her 
de on second floor front. We're all proud to claim Marea 
for our friend, especially when she waxes brilliant in her recita- 
tion-. Keep it up, Marea: you'll make our jaws drop yet. We 
wish we could boast of such brains. 




There was a young lady from " O'iol 
Whose bright recitations wt admiah; 

Her eyes how enticing, with coy looks suffii 
'Jo all lucky men "'ho come nigh 'a.

•• Boxx ik s " collecting coins ! Eaveyou heard a I tout it ? French 
ones at thai. She's l; < > 1 1 * ■ 1 1 a- high as a quarter now. and goes 
up every time the French mail comes in. We're always glad 
i" see Bonnie, even though she's usually getting money out of 
us. We hope -he won't decide to collect American coins, too. 




We've heard that she looks like a kitten, 
Her eyes they an- green ami submittin'; 

Hut in- think she is cute, and easy to suit, 
For someone in France she is knittin'. 




GWENDOLEN BOSSI 
" Gwen "

One year. Wellesley Coll 

Entertainment Committee "1!»: Courant Editor '19; Glee Club '19; 
Fidelio 19; English V Play '19; Class Hockey '19; Numerals, Hare 
and Hound '19; Quartel '19; Senior Play. 



If you Bee a flying figure, ii 's Gwendolen — for she never walks. 
If vmi hear an uproar on third floor wing, it's Gwendolen — 
only teasing Dottie. If you hear gay ragging of the banjorine, 
it'- Gwendolen — lending much jazz to the recreation room. 
And. last hut not least, if you hear of a thoughtful, all-round 
girl, it '- Gwendolen. 



We hare a young Kreisler icith us 
Wlm makes mi « fiddk much rumpus. 

In hockey she's there, and when iee can't comp 
With her fleetness of foot, how we funs.' 



GERTRUDE BOWMAN 
" Gert " 




Albion, 111. 
One year. 



Wellesley Coll a 



Although Gertrude has been with us a very short time, we can 
easily see tbat she lias a decided bent for music, even orchestra 
playing. She has taken a great interest in all events here, espe- 
cially the French mail, and we have become very fond of her. 



Gt rtie vrith the Psyche knot 
Wears a pin they say: 

We discovered 't was a tank, 
Sot a bug, one day. 



MARY ETHEL BREWER 
" Mary " 



19 Oxford Street, "Worcester. Mass. 
Two years. 

Prom Committee: Senior Play. 

Ix future years we may find tbat Mary has acquired great wealth 
by her strict observance of the old saying. " Silence is golden. " 
Mary is very efficient and has many friends to vouch for her 
capability. Strange as it may seem that a girl should be fond 
of her home, Mary has a decided warm place in her heart for 
Worcester. 




Mary is a quiet lass, 

Full of ideas' Yes, she is. 
Hare you ever tasted tier rales. 

All of them just up and rizt

GRETCHEN BAKER BROWN 
" Gret "

Advisory Board '18, '19; Prom Committee; Senior Play; I 
Treasurer 17: Numerals, Basket-ball '18; < lass Basket-ball Team 
1 s : ( 'orporal Co. B 'IS. 



We thoughl Gret came from Bolland, bul guess we're mistaken, 
for she's from a good <>1<I Boston suburb. We were all sorry 
that the Bradford Basket-ball game never came off, as Gret 
surely would have saved the day for us by the nifty way in which 

she can toss baskets. Then how she can play the piano! X le 

could ever get as much "pep"' out of that instrument as Gre1 
can. Here's to you in the future, Gret — we know you're glad 
the war is over. 



There was « young lady named Gretchen 
Whose charms we all think <ir<- must fetchin' ; 

In jazz sht 's right there, and the girls all declare 
Thai it is exceedingly cat chin'. 




MARY VAIL BUTTON 
. "Button" 




Brandon, Vr. 
< me year. Wellesley Colleg 

" Peabl " lives on the top floor i ?) and is one of the heavenly 
quadruplets. The stairs haven't wrought any miraculous 
changes in Pearl's figure, either. Incidentally this same un- 
seemly plumpness was gained at Abbot. Mary is a good exam- 
ple of before and after. By the way. she objected strenuously 
to being called Pearl, but we jusl could n"t resist it. 



Oh, Wary, Want, you 're no fairy, 

For now you 're a true Abbot girl. 
You were thin when you came, but words are now lanu 

In describing our once sylph-likt Pearl.

Delegate '17: Student Council 'l(i. '17: Secretary of Student Coun- 
cil 'IS. 19; Class Vice-President '15; Class President '16. 

Marion came from "way down Maine five year- ago, and she's 
stuck by us all the way through. She 's one of the corner-stones 
of old nineteen. We're all very fond of Marion, though she 
could n't be called exactly noisy ! She '- a very efficient little 
Student Government secretary and never mislays any of our 
discredit-. 



Our Marion is a little girl 
Who 's living high this 

She is so sweet a nil thotful, 
And certainly is dear. 



MARGARET FULLER CLARK 
"Mag" 



169 Chestnut Street, Xorth Andover, Mass. 
Five years. Welleslev Colles 

Honor Roll '15, 'Hi. '17. '18; Odeon; Class Book Board '19; Senior 
Play: English V Plaj '18. 

Margaret's sunshiny hair is characteristic of her sunny dispo- 
sition, as are her brilliant blushes of her brilliant wit. She is 
a great favorite in the house as well as out. and can usually be 
found laughing, talking, <tudvino-. or fooling with Gert Stark. 




Margaret is a priceless pearl; 

No "ruhii" with her imtii compare. 
Mistress an>l queen of tht day-scholars' ■ 

Her orders are just anil fair.

Belfast, Maine. 
Three years. 

Senior Play; Senior-Middle Play; 
Doubles ( 'hampion 'is. 



A " Society '18, '19 : Tennis 



Clemmie plays g I tennis, and is always ready to eat and share 

eats. We heard a vague rumor that her two " would-be slender" 
neighbors tried to make her diet, bui Clemmie drew the line 

when it came to lemons. In Clemmie's eyes Maine i- the only 
state in New England. We'll admit it 's not bad, bui once we 
did a little motoring in the rain down there, and you know how- 
it is! 




Oh, Clemmie she lives down in Maine, 
Anil knitting lias gone 'must insane. 

Hi r tennis is sua pin/, which mnilt US nil happy, 

When for it mi " .1 " she diil gain. 




KATHARINE 3PELMAN COE

Class Basket-ball Team '17. 'ls. ; ( la- Hockey Team '17. '18, '19. 

I 'm sure we all sympathize with Kitty in her devotion to 
her anti-fat tonic. Cheer up, Kitty, even if you can "crawl 
through a flute without striking a note." it certainly doesn't 
t \oiir disposition, for which yon are famous. Though she 
holds a high official position, her spirit of good sportsmanship 
remains the same, ami for the success of this last year we can 
only thank *' you ami you alone.' 3 

From Vew York comes «"/• slim little Kiti

If through tin gym iinnr 
You could spy our be-bloomered young Kitty.

MARY ELIZABETH COLE 
" Mary " 



Kennebnnk, Maine. 

rs. 



Glee CI " - 19; Numerals, Hare and Hound 19. 



\F.ABY lives on third floor from. S - _enerally very mouse- 
like, but not so when she is proctor. How she can hold down an 
uproar by one reproving look from those far-seeiug orbs! But 
never mind. Mary, it comes to all of us - ay, and we sympa- 

thize. We often notice thick epistles in the mail rack among the 
• '-. and every time the red. blue, green, any shade of ink car 
our eve. who knows it may be Postum '. 



Oh. Mary, Mary, • ntrary, 

For tardiness she thinks a crime. 
She is giggley OS 'fin he. 

But giggley ones icin'every time.

Gray Cliff Boad. Newton Centre. M - 
Two years. 

Glee Club 18, 19; Fidelio "l->. 19; Fidelio President "10: Senior 
Play: Senior-Middle Play. 

IE has taken to poetry lately — her favorite seems to be the 
Blue and the Gray. AVe don't know where the emphasis comes. 
t it's navy blue, anyway. Copie is fully half the Fidelio. hav- 
ing a fii-t-elass job in the Presidential range. We hear she's 
sen lemons, but we haven't noticed the effect : anyway, 
her disposition still remains tine-hanged. 




Wt have a little fairy \rho lives in 

Ton say you don't believe us.' Just see her height and weight. 
Wt 're often heard it rumored that Copie's pretty nice. 

And everyone believes it — ire "re heard it more than ticiee.

MARGARET HAMILTON DANE 
" Maggie " 



Kciinehunk. Manic 
Two years. 

Advisory Board '18; Entertainment Committee '18, '19; Class Book 
Board '19 ; Senior Play. 



Maggie is just an all-round big peach, warm-hearted, generous, 
jolly, conscientious, quick-witted — Init we could fill up the whole 
page with adjectives aboul Maggie. Lei "> stop uow and jusl 
say everyone likes her, and her spirit has added much to the 
Class of L919. 




Maggie missed her Man/ so 

When she went « way 
7 ' a >ts " Wonder wen she's comin' back," 
Or " //'*"■ long d' you s'pose shell stay?" 




CATHERINE HANCOX DANFORTH 

" K." 



95 Federal Street, New London, Conn. 
Two years. 

. Fidelio '18; Fidelio Vice-President '19; Glee Club is. '!!>. 



We may have seen humorous people, hut of all we've ever met, 
K. lias the dryesl humor and the most ludicrous. She can look 
perfectly sober and yet keep people in stitches of laughter. K. 

lias an excellent head, one which can think things through and 
think them through in the right way. Sailors have a greal at- 
traction for K. — she's not a hit partial to the army. Who 

could be in New L Ion ? 



We hare a </i>l who '«, <>li. so droll, 

lint we nil know she 'II reach her goal. 
She '8 clever, bright, nml «//. so quick! 

lint once she settles, there she 'II Stick.

HELEN ALDRICH DOLE 

"Helen" 




4.5 Prospect Street, Lawrence. Mass. 
Six years. 

Fidelio "14, '15. 

Very few people know Helen as she really is. She seems on 
the surface to be a quiet, unassuming little blonde, but the 
old saying, "Still waters run deep," applies to our Helen. "We 
licai' she's taking a household science course, but the question is, 
when does s] lc > take it? We never see her in class. 



Then is a maid in our school. 

117(0 hates to keep a single rult : 
So ir]icn she wants, she cuts a class, 

lint somehow sit- can always pass. 



JENNIE MARR DUNAWAY 
"Jennie Marr " 



Virginia, HI. 
Two years. 

Senior Play: Senior-Middle Play. 



Jennie Mare's happy smile and hearty greeting are the best 
signs of her friendliness. .Moreover, her friends are never 
neglected because of her devotion to her studies. Scarcely anyone 
i> more generous and good-natured than Jennie Marr. and she 
doesn't mind being teased because she i- broad. The occupation 
which delights her most is dabbing in the oils in the studio. 
painting china, or discoursing upon the never-ending merits of 
Illinois. 



Jennie Man has many traits, 
But of all things that she hates 

'T is to study, rant, or write j 
She l<ts 'cm go just out of spite.

otic League '19; President of Student Council '19; Class Treasurer 
'17: Senior-Middle Play; Senior Play; Numerals, Hockey "17. 'is. 
'!!•: Corporal '18. 



We nil wonder what the future will hold for Cora, shall we see 
Iter starred on the vaudeville Btage or not? Whatever her pro- 
fession, we sincerely hope that she won't become paralyzed when 
addressed by her domineering elders. But we hand it to Cora. 
that she lias made a great success towards our good behavior this 
year, and now we are ready to go out into the world true Abbot 
products — thank- to von. Cora!

pects to sun herself in Florida soon after leaving here. A- one 
of the fairies in our Senior Play, -he was most attractive. Dor-

GRACE MURDOCK FRANCIS 
" Grace " 



57 Bartlet Street, Andover, Mass. 

Four year-. Museum School of Fine Art-. B >ston. 

Fidelio 15, 16, '17. 18. 

Grace shines in "Lit'* and Psychology, and. on the whole, she 

is usually at cli ss - Her motto is. " Oh. how I hate to get up 
in the morning ' " anil consequently we often miss her smiling 
face at chapel. She is fond of drawing — if her books are not 
illustrated to begin with, they usually are in the end. Grace's 
home is in Andover. Ask her anything about the town and 
she "11 tell vou.

To her charming face.

One year. Simmons Coll _ 

Fidelio 19; Numerals. Hare and Hound '1'.'. 

Ikexe has been with us only a year: yet her studious attitude 
might well be an example for us all. We wish that we could look 
as innocent and worried about our lessons as you do. Irene. Per- 
haps it is a studied pos 




Irene pursues her quiet way 
Thinking of higher things. 

She mail, perhaps, some (lag become 
An angel without wings.

■• Millie "" deserted the day scholars in her last year to live in the 
house. She has stuck to the school for five years, and is now 
making a good ending- for her career here by being class Secre- 
tary '1!). She is one of the most loyal and devoted Seniors and 
contributes much to the class. 




To "Frosties" letters that come from France 
We need but give one single glance; 

We know wlio 't is that they are from; 
We used to ask when he 'd come " hum." 



GLADYS MILDRED GLENDINNING 

"Gladys" 




225 Jackson Street. Lawrence. Mass. 
Five years. 

Fidelio 16, '17. 



Gladys aspires to be a toe-dancer, and we all wish her the great- 
est success. Another little hobby of hers is roses. Ask her about 
then) sometime. Strange to say. however, these roses bloom at 
sea more than on land. Dare we to suggest that saying — "Ab- 
sence makes the heart grow fonder"? 



There is n girl front Lawrence town 
Who never wears a single frown, 
And tin, she'll dance from dark till dawn, 

Cuns not for rhythmic on the limn.

MARGARET THORNTON GREELEY 

" Megs " 




45 Orange Street, Nashua, X. H. 

One year. 

Senior Play. 

Margaret hasn't been with us very long, but we wish it had 
been longer, for her sweet disposition has made all love her who 
really know her well. We hear she is apt to get things twisted 
when excited, but we all make mistakes at times. 



// you 're had lira years of French 
And think gou 're very bright, 

Just listen to Miss Greeley talk — 
You'll change your mind, all right. 



EVA JOSEPHINE HAMILTON 
"Jo" 



3308 Robinwood Avenue, Toledo, Ohio. 
One year. Smith College. 

Odeon '19-; Secretary of Odeon "10; Senior Play. 

She may be tiny and look innocent, but when she recites in 
Math, we wonder that one small person can be so wondrous wise. 
We've been awfully glad to have her here this Senior Year, and 
feel that we've made a true friend in "Jo,'" and that she has 
done much for the class. 




If you go to (thin 

At anu time of gear. 
There gun '11 find our little Jo 

And tier " Ford " so dear.

HARRIETTE HARRISON 
•Hat" 



Salisbury, Conn. 
Two years. 

Calendar Committee; Senior Play. 



If you want to borrow something, or want to tell your troubles 
to Bomeone who will sympathize, go to Harriette. She is always 
unselfish and ready to listen. Her tendency is to root pretty 
strongly for Williams. 




// she makes "/< her mind, you can't change it 

No matter how hard you try. 
You might as well stop in the first place 

And not even bother to sigh. 



RUTH CARTER HATHAWAY

With her ready wit and active brain, Ruth can hold her own 
almost anywhere, front a reeeptiou room to a hockey field. In 

all the years, having entered into everything with vim. her en- 
thusiasm for Ahhot has ii"t waned, and she has shown her loy- 
alty at every turn. Her sunshiny -mile has reached the heart-

" Jane " 




13 Abbot Street, Andover, Mass. 
Five years. Smith College. 

Fidelio '15; Numerals, Hockey 'Hi: Captain's Adjutant *1S; French 
Play '16. 



Jane, what would we do in the History class if you didn't fill 
up the gaps in the conversation? Never mind, some of us envy 
you that art. Jane is an all-round good sport with never-ending 
pep. She keeps everyone busy, even the faculty. We all like 
Jane, she's so generous and good-natured and jolly. She might 
almost be called " Sunny Jim.'' Abbot certainly won't seem 
natural without her. 



For Jane is a day scholar, you know, 
She has n't a worry, not one, 

Rite drifts thru her Work 

Without even a quirk 
Just " leave it to Jane," it 's all done. 



MURIEL ARCHIBALD JOHNSON 
" Mooey " 



20 Salem Street. Andover, Mass. 
Five years. Miss Wheeloek's School. 

Class Secretary '16; Class Treasurer "17; Numerals, Hare and 
Hound '19; French Play: Sergeant. 

When wr consider how many excuses she has to find for chapel 
absences, we all agree that "Mooey'* has a wonderful imagina- 
tion. We sometimes wonder when she studies for this conversa- 
tion was overheard by a classmate: 

"Do you study in the afternoon?" 

-Oh. never!'"' 

"Do you study directly after dinner?" 

"Oh, no, I 'm usually busy until ten." 

"You should never study after ten."' 

" I don't. I go to bed." 



Muriel is dainty and neat 

Also she is very sweets- 
Demure and dignified is she 

When very late to school, you see!

Senior Play; Senior Prize Play '19; Draper Header "IS. 

Grace i- our future dramatist. When genius burns in Grace, 
tin- rest of us sit up and take notice, for even though -In- i- from 
Missouri, along these lines sin- certainly can "show us/' " Baste 

make- waste" is one of her mottoes, we think. 




Those cousins out nt Newton

HELEN DORCAS KING 
" Dorcas " 




'■'<■) Lyman Street, Springfield, Ma—. 
One year. Wellesley College. 

Those who really know Dorcas besl say that the reason she 
makes such a good friend is because she i> always the same and 

you can depend upon her. She is on her way to Wellesley and 

we wish her the besl of luck throughout her whole course.

" Bubbles " 




301 Salisbury Street. Worcester, Ma—. 
Three years. 

Senior Play; Numerals, Hockey "17. 'IS. 

< >f course, we all know, since our training at Abbot, that a laugh

Dot is truly "a child of sunshine'" and is always ready for a 
I time. When she arrived this year from far-off Janesville 
a day late, we were only the more glad to see her. We can't seem 
to think of Dot without also seeing Carol. If it's Dot. it V 
Carol, and if it '> Carol, it's Dot.

One of the dearest girls we 're found ; 
Always happy ami jolly and gag 

Every moment of the day.

Tali, and slender, Grace doesn't have to worry aboul "dieting." 
.she loves to dance and she loves to sing. In fact, there's fun 

wherever Grace is, and her gay laugh has become a favorift ■. 

Grace really hates New York, and we always pity her vacation 
times. New Haven i> also a town which <\w heartily despises. 




Her eyes are sparkling and bright, 
They're big and round and dark; 

The kind thai speak of love all right, 
A nd never miss their mark.

Maybe it i> the 1<,<1, somew r here in Helen that ha- kepi us from 
knowing more of her in the year thai she ha- been at Abbot. 
All too few <>f us have found the key to the " jesl and youthful 
jollity-'* that we know is in her. We arc. however, well ac- 
quainted with her much learning. Sufficienl to Bay that a good 
mind is a big asset. 



She's from China 'cross the ski

Gertrude joined us in our fifth year, but very quickly made 
herself known by her continual "A's" in studies. Some people 
we might be jealous of, but we cannot be jealous of ■ She's 
not that kind.

If you want anything done cheerfully, ask Elizabeth. If you 
want anything done correctly, ask Elizabeth. If you want any- 
thing propn.-ed with the utmost tact, ask Elizabeth. If you want 
anytliing done for Abbot, just ask Elizabeth Luce. She can 
purely do it just right. 



Elizabeth has a nose so Grt 
That when the class in Art 

Stared at her — dun in, day out, 
It nearly broke her heart.

turns itself into other channels besides wholesale rough-housery. 
She can lead our class so as to extract volumes of sound, and her

Nadine is our romancer. She writes the -i delicious stories, 

war and otherwise. Isn't it nice to have a gift with which to 
entertain people? Two things we're sure of in Nadine — she'll 
never be called awkward, and she'll never be called a giant. 
Some of us wish that could be said of us, don't we? 




X a dine is a fairy child; 

She's surely full of charm and grace; 
The wit from off her fingers flows; 

In Rhythmic she sets quite a pace.

The house girls are mighty glad that Dorothy decided to come

year of more intimate acquaintance with her for anything. We 
hope she feels the same about them. Dorothy is one of the mosl 
willing, cooperative girls we ever knew; also one of the mosl 
thoughtful and generous. We think we'll gel on the <^<>n,\ side 
of her — we may need her work for our trousseau some day. 
Have von ever -ecu her needlework? 



We 're spoken of Mary Brewer's art 

Of cooking cake and candy, 
But whether it 's dinner or lunch or tea 

With Dorothy everything 's dandy.

stairs, etc. Dot is a very faithful and conscientious worker, very 
neat, and altogether a very dependable sort. If you don't believe 
it. ask her roommate.

Dottie is our song bird and my. but we love to hear her sing! 
But, after five years of effort, she squeals, yes. actually squeals. 
on occasion. Dottie can recite beautifully, if you don't ask her 
questions, and much better if you don't look at her. If she 
decides to do something, even study, you can't change her mind. 
Dottie hates above all things to be called little.

Helex comes from Newburgh — we can tell by the way she 

says " down." So can you. if you listen. As a scholar Helen 
more than dazzles us. We depend upon her almost entirely for 
reviews in class before exams. One of her specialties is geog-

you about the Lewis and Clark one. or just the plain Clark one.

Intervale 



(" 1 'm Always Chasing Rainbows") 
At the end of Exams comes our Intervale. 

And to go there so often we've sighed, 
For we've heard such tales of those mountain trails, 

And our dreams have long been denied. 



a 



Now we have really been there 

And we all love it so, 
Just wait until yon go there 

And then you'll really know 
"What fun is. 
It's worth Psych and Art History and College Mathematics. 

Our Intervale 

("For Lore") 

"We took goloshes: everybody ploshes 

In the snowdrifts, up there : 
We took our skates, too. cracked our little pate-, too, 

On the ice rifts up there. 

We are a crew well banged up, 

And so black and blue, 
But what 's left of us, what *s not reft of us, 

We have brought hack to you. 

("After You've Gone") 

While we were gone, we did some skiing, 

Tobogganing and some sightseeing; 

We *ve been glad, far from sad. 

And had the hestest time we've ever had. 

You '11 go up there, now don't you miss it, 

Thought of exams, you just dismiss it. 

Oh girls! there's so much snow there, 

You eat and eat and eat and 

Oh, how you grow there!

As we stand before the symbol of the years that we have known, 

In this place of inspiration and of dreams, 
We are like the tiny argosies that ply their way alone, 

Setting out from peaceful havens, so to cany out their scheme-. 
And we 're longing for the going with a haunting sense of pain 

That ever lead- us onward like a finger beckoning white. 
We go out our little parts to play, but we return again 

To our lire of inspiration, fading torches to relight. 

And a- we carry onward through our nagging daily cares. 

Over rocks and up the mountains to success, 
The thin".' that keep- us going and that keeps us out of snares 
1- the tender memory, like a soft care--. 

Of tho-e hack here who love us, wait fulfillment of our 
dreams, 

And arc proud of every worthy thing we do; 
And who wait for our returning with a 

soothing love that seems 
To send us hack to battle strong anew. 

Oh, here we "\e had our sorrows 

With little tragic pain, 
And here our gay tomorrows 

Always made each sadness gain, 
For we have all been comrade- here, 

Hut now our work is done. 
And we -et out w ithout a fear 

Our larger course to run.

The Outcome 



THE sky-way was almost deserted one bright 
June morning. Two dapper little planes 
were approaching each other at headlong speed 
with a swaying, swinging swagger which" he- 
tokened the absent-mindedness of their drivers. 

There was a collision ! ! ! ! And the two 
planes settled like tiny broken birds. Two be- 
goggled figures raised themselves from the 
debris. 

"What is the matter with you?" 

" It was all your fault ! " 

'* You were wrong. You don't know the sky 
regulations." 

Very much heated by these vehement pro- 
tests, the two indignant pilots snatched off 
their helmets. 

" ( 'ami." gasped one. 

"Why! It's Buzz.'" drawled the other. 
"What are you doing here?" 

'" 1 "in on my way to visit Cora. She's run- 
ning Child's, you know. Grace is visiting her. 
too. She is taking a special ' Gym " course. 
My main reason, though, is to see Beth, who is 
making her first appearance at the Boston 
Opera House this week. "Where are you 
going? " 

"I'm coming from Bonney's. She has heen 
made accountant for the foreign mail and has 
just given another Duxbury house party. All 
the old hunch were there. Hat has heen doing 
animated cartoons for the movies and Wygie has 
heen posing for her. Gret as a typist is a 
splendid pianist. Dot has taken over Marcellus 
Hofflin Co.. and 1 "m her traveling salesman."" 

•• ( arol ! Of all things, that is news! Have 
you heard about Kathleen? She has made a 
decided success with the Ballet Russe. and Kitty 
has joined the Anti-Fat Association and is 
working desperately. Ginnie i> teaching Psy- 
chology at Hampton University, ably assisted 
by Marion Nichols, who is in charge of the 
Darkey Brotherhoods. Tell me about some 
more of the girls."' 

"Let"- see. you heard, of course, that Marea 
bas settled down to sweet domesticity, having 
given up her quest for academic degrees. Betty 
Wright has designed a magnificent mansion for 
her. She has won other architectural laurels 
by designing a new conservatory at which Dotty 
Will is busy teaching the masculine element to 
do, re, me, fa, sol." 

" Did you hear that Mary Cole is staff re- 



porter on the Kennehunk Sfitr? And Margaret 

Dane is doing reconstruction work in France." 

•• How splendid! By the way. are you going 
to Intervale this winter? Millie Frost is tak- 
ing Mr. Bassett's place in conducting the Abbot 
Alumnae Tours." 

" Xo ! Oh. Carol, I was in Xew York last 
month and I saw little Jo Hamilton, who's 
become the Maude Adams of the age in ' Peter 
Fan.' Do you believe in fairies?" 

" I certainly do. Speaking of fairies, Mein- 
mie Chandler is married, lives down in Maine, 
has a cute little farm, an' ducks, an' pigs, an' 
everything." 

"' Bless her heart ! I wonder what else I can 
tell you. Gladys Merrill is still doing research 
work in history and is one of the best authori- 
ties in the country. Times will change ! Her 
roommate, Dorcas King, is teaching Gym and, 
as Gym teachers usually do. has announced her 
engagement."' 

" 1 heard that Nadine Scovill is senator from 
Xew York state, and Dot Tyler is her secretary 
and campaign manager." 

•■ Have vou heard that Clemmie has just de- 
feated Molla Bjursted for the International 
Tennis Championship?" queried Buzz. 

" Xo. but 1 saw Fizzie Armstrong last week. 
She "s starring in the musical hit of the season. 
"The Girl Who Laughs.' and Gwen. you know, 
is playing with the Symphony this week. We 
must n't miss her.'" 

" Xo, indeed, and you must sec Elizabeth 
Luce on your way home. She is training ballet 
dancers in Xew York. What do vou think of 
that?" 

'" I declare!" laughed Carol. '"But you 
know Ruth Alley never went on the stage at 
all. She is teaching Vocal Expression at 
Smith. Margaret Greeley has married Profes- 
sor Alhrecht. the eminent. Psychologist." 

" Speaking of education. .Jane Holt is the 
head of the Andover Home for the Aged, and 
Grace Francis is drawing magazine-cover girls 
for the Metropolitan" said Buzz, with a well- 
known " he-he." 

"That's nothing. Stark and Clark are run-

"Oh. she is queen of all stateswomen a>

is an accompanist Tor Sousa's Band." 

"Mary Brewer is happy. She's an influen- 
tial member of Worcester Society, and is run- 
ning the Charity Hull this year with Jennie 
Man- to assist her." 

Rattle-de-bang, clap, clap, bang; a voice from 
the tumult. "Want any help?" An anti- 
quated Ford truck appeared, breathing out its 
last on the up-grade and coming to a stop with 
a final groan of despair. A majestic figure dis- 
mounted from the front seat and regarded the 
rear axle with motherly concern. 

"Copie, Copie!"' screamed Carol, plowing 
through the remains of her splintered plane 
toward her beloved pal. "Copie!" and with 
another stride reached her outstretched arms 
and was clasped in a tight embrace. 

" Oh ! I am so glad to see you ! Buz/, is here! 
Our planes hit each other, hut we weren't hurt. 
Come over and tell us all the spice." 

"Hello, Buzz' how are you? What have 
you and Carol been doing to each other?'" 

"Oh. Copie, isn't this just like old times? 
What have you been doing? Do tell us all the 
spice." 

" Why, 1 'm patrol of the Newton Skyway. 
1 '\e just been released from Naval duty and 
have been over to put my Caproni Biplane in 
the hangar. Let me see. what can 1 tell you? 
Well, Ruth Hathaway is leader of the National 
Community sings, and Ellie Taylor is in charge 
of the New Rochelle Branch, having made such 
a success that she managed to get Stibby away 
from the whirl of Springfield society long 
enough to captivate the hearts of the hoys.'' 

"Up to their old 1 ricks." said Buzz. "Jerry 
Murray has just published a pamphlet on ' How 
Lillian Bussed and I Retain Our Beauty.' I Hi 
trying the treatment myself." 



Carol, disgustedly, " Humph!" 

Copie. undisturbed, " I can tell you etome 
more if you -top discussing beauty long enough 
to listen. Bubbles never sees the old crowd anj 
more as she is so wrapped up in her beloved 
settlement work that she can't bear to Leave 
Worcester. And Pearl Button has finally 
formed the link between Vermont and Cali- 
fornia by her famous trip on which she tried, 
with great Buccess, the 'Eat and Crow Thin 
Diet!!' And I've heard about nearly all the 
girls that lived near Andover. Helen Hole i- 
head of the Lawrence City Mis-ions, and Dor- 
othy Evans has roused the people by her stirring 
speeches on factory conditions. Elizabeth Sjos- 
trom has founded the New Andover Jitney Sys- 
tem and is r unn ing back and forth and around 
for Phil(l)ip's friends and their Buitcases, and 
Mooev Johnson is doing kindergarten work on 
the bill. Dot Shapleigh is exhibiting remark- 
able china in her charming little Andover gift- 
shop." 

" Isn't it just great to hear about what every- 
one is doing! " exclaimed Buzz. " I saw Gladys 
(ilendinning's name on a movie billboard the 
other day, and Grace Kepner is making mil- 
lions writing movie scenarios." 

" Harriet Harrison is running a IIo>te» 
House at Hotchkiss," interposed Carol, "and 
Catherine Dan forth is doing her bit for the 
development of the ' Fleet.' while Margaret 
Worman is posing for Harrison Fisher and is 
also taking a course in expert photography. By 
the way. isn't, or rather, wasn't my plane a 
beauty? T got it from ' K.' Beck. She has 
been giving us all pointers in the aviation 
line." 

Buzz, as usual. " My! but I 'm hungry, isn't 
there a dog-cart around here somewhere? 1 
can't leave my plane.'' 

Copie. rising. " Come on up to the bouse for 
breakfast. As for the planes, we'll take them 
along. Hop in. I '11 pick them up." 

Bang, clappety bang, clap . . . and the 
faithful little Ford once more took up its bur- 
den of life, said burden not by any means 
lessened by the addition of Carol and the 
splinters, to say nothing of Buzz!

FIELDS OF FRANCE 

Grey, green fields before me lie. 
Pleading mutely to the sky. 
Peopled with the living dead. 
Sad grey fields of Frame. 

Proud grey poplars Badly bend, 
Tell a story without end. 
of a patience born of pain 

In tho-e fields of France. 

Leaves that whisper all the while, 
Wistful fac.- seem to smile. 
In the mist that wraps in white 
Tragic fields of France. 

Down the winding road there comes 
The unending sound of gun-. 
And I Ve left my peace of soul 
In those fields of France. 

ILS NE PASSERONT PAS 

The foe moved on. and steel on cold steel clashed. 
That line of blue, invincible stood fast; 
And ever rang that clarion tall. 
They shall not pass ! 

TO BRITAIN 

Heroic Britain, saviour of the world! 

Britain, if it had not been for thee. 

If thou hadst not thy forces forward hurled 

Against the tide of Evil's tyranny: 

Had not thy -on- with gladness fought the fi^ht 

And stood the test throughout those fir>t dark day-: 

Had they not sacrificed their lives, that right 

Should conquer might, that right should reign alway: 

If thou hadst bartered o'er thy soul for gold. 

And had not answered when we called thy name, 

Thy name would never lie upon the roll 

Of those who stand within the Halls of Fame. 

( > England, ever in thy debt we stand, 

Who save thv life, thy all. to save our land.

THE ORPHANS OF FRANCE 



Tin war orphans speak: 

Our feet are so sine, and we've wandered ><> far, 

And we 're tired, we orphans of France. 
And we've no mother's arms into which we may creep 
To pour out our troubles and then fall asleep 
In that shelter of love all so cozy and deep. 
And the winters are cold, lure in France. 



Matin / Earth speaks: 

Yes, winter must come as tlie seasons roll round. 

You poor tired babies of France. 
But I "11 make a place on my frost-hardened breast 
Just as soft and as downy as any bird's nest. 
And there you may lie and may dream, as you rest, 

Of your mother's breast, orphans of France. 

Tin I'n in speaks: 

And tho' I must fall, I wont trouble your sleep, 

Little travel-worn babies of France. 
But gently I "11 bathe the tear -tains from your face. 
And cool blistered feet till you dream for a space 
Of a happier time and a happier place, 

And your mother's hands, orphans of France. 

Tin Snow speaks: 

And I must dexend when the Winter commands, 

Little shivering bodies in France. 
But I '11 conic just a- gently, and fall -oft and white 
To make you a blanket through Winter's long night, 
And you '11 dream it s your mother's arms holding you tight. 

Those mother's arms, orphans of France 

Tin W'inil sp< ul.s : 

And I, too. am subject to Winter's command-. 

Little gun-deafened babies of France. 
But I '11 blow, oh so gently, and croon soft and low. 
And you sleeping sweetly there, under the -now. 
Will dream of a lullaby sung long ago, 

And your mother's love, orphans of Prance.

M\x Tex Eyck, a chum of Robert Virginia Miller

Synopsis 



To Molly"* great chagrin her maid elopes just 
after her guests, Dorothy March and Max Ten Eyck, 
have arrived. However, she is fortunate enough to 
get a supposed maid, really June Haverhill, Wellesley 
'06, who is doing some special investigation for eco- 
nomics courses Juring the summer. Embarrassing 
for June was the fact that, though to Molly she was 
known by the name of the first maid. Ellen, she was 
recognized by Bob, Molly's brother, who now falls in 
love with her. She is also recognized by Max. who 
is engaged to Dorothy because his late aunt's money 
was left to them both on condition that they marry 
each other. But Max is actually in love with June, 
while in the meanwhile an eccentric rector, John 
Hume, falls in love with Dorothy. Dorothy, how- 
ever, though sympathetic, is not in love with the 
lector. 

Molly'- new 'maid'' is absent the next morning 
early and, though she is only golfing with Bob, all 
believe her to have followed the first maid's example 
in eloping. Meanwhile Mr. Hume leaves on the garden 
table a passionate note to Dorothy, expre-sing his de- 
sire to win her. and signed with his initials. J. H., 



which are also the initials of June Haverhill. Shortly 
afterward Max and Dorothy break their engagement. 
and hereupon Max finds Mr. Hume's note. He is 
much disturbed, thinking that it is from June to 
himself. On returning. Mr. Hume delights in the 
absence of the note, because he thinks that Dorothy 
has taken it. 

Before the garden party that evening. Molly finds 
out who her new maid is. It seem- to be an evening 
of proposals. To June's great di-gust Max proposes 
because he thinks it his duty, having had a former 
affair with her, and having read the note signed 
J. H. Finally, however, the misunderstanding is 
explained by the supposition that the note is one of 
Bob's jokes. Then June becomes angry with Boh. 
The second proposal is that of Mr. Hume to the 
horrified Dorothy. Max, however, who has decided 
that lie really loves her. comes to her rescue, and 
they again become engaged. Mr. Hume's proposal ex- 
plains the note, and so Bob and June, forgetting their 
quarrel, become engaged, and. as a good story should 
end. all live happily ever afterwards.

The Landlord Martha Stockwell 

Lady Joan Eliza Ba i lej

Synopsis 



Those with keen ears might have heard the fol- 
lowing conversation between Dickon and Sam soon 
after the great incident in the former lad's life as 
portrayed on the Abbot stage under the title of " The 
Patched Cloak": 

Dickon. P faith, Sam, 'tis true, every word of 
it. Thou dost remember how 1 told thee of my wild 
hopes of adventure and untold fortune? I sat there 
shining the tankard-, and thou wert taking thine 
ease on yon bench by the fire. Give ear, then, and I 
will tell thee what did befall after the hostler had 
so rudely called thee away. As I sat alone dream- 
ing of that gorgeous cloak of Sir Walter Raleigh's 
all dripping with mud, — what dost thou think, Sam. 
— a lady opened the door! She would not have me 
take time to call mine host, but asked me to belp 
her. 'T was such a pretty talc she told of running 
away from a knavish brother who bid her marry 
against her will, that 1 sought to protect her. So 
ere the gentleman arrived, she donned my patched 
cloak and set to work shining the tankards. 

Sam. Hold, Dickon, did na the lord espy her'.' 

Dickon. Ay. but lie paid no heed to her when I 
rated her roundly for her lack of diligence as I 
would any scullery maid. He suspected that I knew 
of her whereabouts and grew so wroth that he would 
have thrashed me. had not the landlord happily come 
to my rescue. But he sided with the gentleman, and 
things wore like to go ill with me, when, in the nick 
of time, the lady revealed herself. And. Sam. 't was 
all nought but a jest between Lady .loan and Sir 
Hugh, who was a guest of her father's. 



Sam. A jest. Dickon! Then how comest thou by 
the wondrous fortune that thou toldst me of now? 

DICKON. Marry, because I had taken part, though 
all unwittingly, in a wager they had betwixt them. 
Sir Hugh hath said that no man could insult her 
with him standing by and not presently receive a 
beating the like of which he hath ne'er felt before. 
P faith, when 1 called her "slothful Janie " and 
"lazy wench " and Sir Hugh dealt me no thwacks for 
my rude words, lie thereby lost the wager and her for- 
feit of a kiss. My lady seemed well pleased and 
rewarded me loyally for my service in her behalf by 
helping my good Mother. But Sir Hugh was not 
content to accept defeat thus, for according to their 
wager, should he disregard an insult to hi- lady and 
another man champion her cause, she was to give 
her kiss to that other man. Sam. lie would have had 
Lady Jean give her kiss to me! Truly, I knew not 
what to say. and before I could gather my scattered 
wits lie offered to give me a place in his service it 
1 would let him have her kiss. Was it not a right 
pretty bargain, Sam'.' Come Monday next. I am to 
be Sir Hugh's man, to wear his livery and earn fif- 
teen shillings a month. 

Sam. Thou ever wort a lucky fellow, Dickon. Me- 
thinks thy lord is strangely generous with his 
favors or else be sorely coveted the lady's klSS. Dosl 
think -he ha' given it him. after all? 

DICKON. Ay, tor the landlord said tiny were right 
friendly at supper, and he doth not often see much 
farther than his nose.

Bobby Lowell, her son ' Bertha Worman 

Elizabeth Lowell, her step-daughter Dorothy Fisher 

Richard Johnson, a young business man Helen Locke 



Synopsis 



In his will, the late George Lowell inserted a 
clause which made it impossible for his daughter, 
Betty, to come into possession of her share of his 
estate if she married without the approval of her 
-tepmother, Mrs. George Winthrop Lowell. Airs. 
Lowell is strongly prejudiced against anyone who is 
not a member of one of the " first families " and 
consequently makes it very uncomfortable for Rich- 
ard .Johnson, a rising young business man who is in 
love with Betty. Airs. Lowell, with Betty and her 
-mall son, Bobby, is spending the summer with her 
brother, Air. Hunnewell. She is indignant because 
lie. a- Betty's guardian, allows Air. Johnson to visit 
them, and during one of his visits, while the young 
people, assisted by Bobby, who is jealous of both of 
them, are playing tennis, a heated discussion is held 
by the aristocratic Airs. Lowell, her brother and 
sister-in-law. Since the death of her own mother. 
Betty has spent the greater part of her time with 
her aunt and uncle, whom she loves as an own 
mother and father and who wish to let nothing 
stand in the way of her happiness. They are both 
very fond of Air. Johnson and believe him to be the 
finest of her admirers. Neither Betty nor Air. John- 
son know of her father's will, but Air. Johnson from 
a -ense of unwortbiness because he has no family. 
determines not to reveal his love for Betty, and until 
the day of which I speak, lie had not called at the 
Hunnewells' for some time. During this visit they 



accidentally find that their love is mutual, and as 
Betty assures Richard that his family does not 
matter, they happily await Air. Hunnewell*s return 
from a committee meeting to secure his consent. 
Betty tells Richard during the evening of her step- 
cousin, Dick Hunnewell. who was drowned at sea 
about ten years ago. and Richard is telling what 
he remembers of his life with his Uncle Dan, an old 
sea captain, when Airs. Lowell interrupts them with 
the pretense of looking for " Robert."' In the mean- 
time Bobby, in a playful tussle with Air. Johnson. 
has discovered a very interesting triangular bald 
spot on the top of that young man's head, which fact 
he confides to his aunt and finds that it excites her 
very much indeed. Richard asks Hr. Hunnewell to 
help him find his family, as L'ncle Dan has told him 
that he is no relation to him and that he was picked 
up out at sea when he was about fifteen years old. 
Tints enabled by the bald spot on his head and the 
fact that he v. as picked up at sea, near Gloucester 
Air. and Airs. Hunnewell discover Richard Johnson 
to be their long-lost son, and Airs. Lowell, not will- 
ing to be found in error, asserts that she was deeply 
pained to object to "Air. John — er Richard." but 
i- very glad that it is not necessary, and gives her 
consent, which completes the happiness of all. most 
of all, Bobby, for. all complications having been 
straightened out. lie can now see that fascinating 
bald spot again.

There 's the one eternal question, " Who 's the man 

you 're going to a>k'r " 
Then you fill your order- out. which surely i> a task. 

And then the day draws nearer and our dresses they 

inspect. 
Each layer of tulle, each ruffle and each tuck do they 

dissect. 
For necks are high at Abbot and sleeves are just so 

long. 
And yards and yards of tulle are bought that they 

may not be wrong. 

At last the night itself arrives, and soon the music 
starts, 

Sending thrill- and flutters to the many l>eating 
heart-. 

But why, you say, about a dance should this excite-

Because we have them once a year, and only once,

NINETEEN IN ABBOT-LAND 



(With apologies to Alice in Wonderland) 



The sun was shining on the tr. - 

S tuning with all hi> might; 
]!•• did hi* very best to make 

The circle smooth and bright; 
And this was odd because it was 

Already <|inte all right. 

The Hydrant and the Maple Tree 
Were standing close at hand: 

They wept like anything to think 
Of lonesome Abbot-land. 

•• If old Nineteen could only stay," 
They said. " it would be grand." 

- These sixty maids with sixty ways 
Have made this year so gay! " 

•• But don't forget those olden times 
Of underclassmen -way! 

•• I don't." the Hydrant sadly said, 
And shed a bit of spray. 

•• Those pig-tail- and those flying skirt- 
When they were preps of yore! 
■ Now- they don't grind out Latin verbs 



We hear their moans no more: 

For Psych and Art and other things 

Don't seem quite such a bore." 

" They 've been to picnics, given play-. 

The ■ Twig of Thorn ' last year ; 
And went for winter holiday 

I'o Intervale. I hear. 
At last they 're doing senior things 

They long have held so dear.'' 

" They 've walked around the ' 

From Senior Prom so gay. 
Their last one here at Abbot, 

But not their last I '11 -ay." 
" And they 've lately given Shakespeare 

In a not unseemly way." 

- when the Maple whispers -oft. 

And the Hydrant gurgles low. 
You '11 know they talk of olden time-.
